Good morning. If that's not a contradiction in terms. I am not at my best before midnight. Though, as there is no one around at night to notice, this has led to the assumption that I have no best. We are coming to television. Do relax. I felt my way downstairs in an unfocused fashion about 10am, with some somnambulistic intention of watching the start of colour on all channels.

Tarzan, this massive suntanned chap wearing a small doormat, was rippling his pectorals all over my living room. It quite upset me. I've had colour television for more than two years now. I've grown accustomed to its stunning face, and have even learnt to listen to what it is saying. For initially, the effect of colour is deafening. »
